The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will begin their quest to repeat as Super Bowl champions when they host the Philadelphia Eagles in a 2022 NFC Wild Card Game on Sunday. Tampa Bay (13-4) crushed Kansas City in Super Bowl LV last year and followed by winning a franchise-record 13 regular-season games en route to its first NFC South title since 2007. Philadelphia (9-8) overcame a 2-5 start to reach the NFL playoffs for the fourth time in five seasons.
Kickoff at Raymond James Stadium is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET. Tampa Bay is a seven-point favorite in the latest Buccaneers vs. Eagles odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over-under for total points scored is 47.
Before you make any Eagles vs. Buccaneers picks or NFL playoff predictions, you NEED to check out the latest NFL predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.
The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up more than $7,400 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters the 2021 NFL playoffs on an incredible 136-97 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.
The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is WAY UP!
The model knows the Buccaneers concluded the regular season with a three-game winning streak and seven victories in their final eight contests. Tom Brady continued to defy Father Time in 2021, as he threw for a league-leading 5,316 yards to join Drew Brees as the only players in NFL history with multiple 5,000-yard seasons. Brady threw a pair of touchdown passes and fell three passing yards shy of 300 as Tampa Bay posted a 28-22 victory at Philadelphia in Week 6.
The model also knows the Eagles won four straight contests and six of seven prior to their 51-26 loss to Dallas in the meaningless season-finale. Rookie head coach Nick Sirianni elected to keep Jalen Hurts out of the lineup for that game. In his first full season as Philadelphia's starting quarterback, the 23-year-old threw for 3,144 yard and 16 touchdowns while also leading the team in rushing yards (784) and TDs (10).
